FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Reto Ziegler opened the scoring with a penalty kick, Zdenek Ondrásek added two goals and an assist, and FC Dallas beat the Houston Dynamo 5-1 on Sunday night.
FC Dallas’ Dominique Badji drew the foul against José Bizama, and Ziegler converted from the spot in the 24th minute.
Jesús Ferreira made it 2-0 for FC Dallas (11-10-7) five minutes later, making a run from midfield after receiving Ondrásek’s pass and dribbling around Houston’s Aljaz Struna to create space in the penalty area for the shot.
Ondrásek knocked home Ryan Hollingshead’s cross in the 56th minute, and made a sliding effort to finish Dominique Badji’s cross in the 64th minute. Ondrásek has three goals in his last two games.
